Lisa Prank – Adult Teen // Album Review

A ripe and ready, bright and breezy, honest summer soundtrack

Asian Dub Foundation – More Signal More Noise // Album Review

Though the occasional rallying cry is dated by agit-skank circa the band’s nineties inception, ADF’s ace remains their fusion of bhangra, ragas and Eastern percussion to punky dancehall and drum’n’bass

Helen Love – Smash Hits // Album Review

The best thing about Helen Love is that amidst the over-the-top chaos, there’s always a hint of irony – take them too seriously, and you’re simply missing the point

Gnod – Just Say No To The Psycho Right-Wing Capitalist Fascist Industrial Death Machine...

The album’s antagonistic political edge recalls a more expansive and oblique Fugazi as the band lurches from disquiet to pure rage with a flick of a wrist

Los Campesinos! – Sick Scenes // Album Review

Los Campesinos! are back and thankfully, they’re on full- throttle form.

Destroyer – Poison Season // Album Review

Dan Bejar is not aiming for world domination on Poison Season – he’s refining his audience

Mammoth Penguins – Hide And Seek // Album Reviews

Rejection, hope, despair and all the usual common grievances of being in your late twenties/early thirties are a persistent theme on Hide and Seek

Todd Terje – It’s Album Time // Album Review

Incredible amounts of intergalactic Italo-disco fun.

Georgia – Georgia // Album Review

Georgia’s long player is a startlingly brilliant debut: organic, fiercely so, and bristling with swaggering arrogance.

Alex Cameron – Jumping The Shark // Album Review

Deadpan synth ditties vs tongue-in cheek-croon; there's something soothing in Alex Cameron's company, something reassuring

Yo La Tengo – There’s A Riot Going On // Album Review

But this record is less a riot, more a beautifully shuffling glide. A gorgeous, quiet album made in loud, confusing times.

Low – Double Negative // Album Review

It's demanding music, but it sounds like they needed to make it.

Dinosaur Pile Up – Eleven Eleven // Album Review

A self-help album might be a statement too far, but clearly DPU have created something that all listeners can relate too - and even if it's a helping hand to one person, then this is surely a triumph in its own right

Hieroglyphic Being – The Disco’s of Imhotep

The Chicago producer's latest is perfected not just in the odd combinations of skittering snare fills, bleeps and pulsating ambient washes – but in the way he’s mixed it, with each element cleverly balanced and holistically intertwined

Every Now & Then – Jagwar Ma // Album Review

Every Now & Then is beautifully textured in sublime layers of synth, rhythmic guitar and backbeat, creating glorious atmospheric dreampop.


Unable to be the band they once were; they’re relevant, but not producing anything that’s going to become the next ‘Turncoat’ or ‘Press Corpse

No Age – Snares Like A Haircut // Album Review

With all the jittery unease and anxious nervous energy that currently pervades the world, it feels like these times are calling for a band like No Age.

Powell – Sport // Album Review

Powell has always strived to do something different and utterly confounding. In Sport, he’s surpassed that entirely - here’s an album that is truly special

Amen Dunes – Love // Album Review

The balance between lightweight lo-fi and expansive alt-pop has been struck expertly, making Love a record to hold your hand during your more insular and solipsistic moments
